Dead wild animal on private property

Small wild animals can be buried or put in the garbage. If you find a dead wild animal on your property, do not touch it with your bare hands. Wear gloves to bury it or use a double plastic bag to pick it up and place it in another plastic bag to dispose of it. Wash your hands.

For large animals, you can contact a private company specialized in dead wildlife removal.

Some birds and mammals (coyote, wolf, grey fox, wild turkey, etc.) must be reported to the Ministère des Forêts, de la Faune et des Parcs . In some cases, they may have to be handed over to a wildlife officer.
